Hundreds of Indonesians protested in at least three cities Sunday against Israel's attacks on Lebanon, calling Israel a terrorist state and urging it to stop. At least 500 protesters, most wearing white Muslim tunics, held an anti-Israel demonstration in Surabaya, the East Java provincial capital. "The US has to stop the brutality of Israel troops in Gaza and Lebanon," Rita Cecirapanin, a woman preacher wearing a head scarf, told the gathering. "How many more children will have to die by Israel bombings?" she asked. Some protesters set Israeli and US flags on fire as others shouted their condemnation of Israel's attacks, yelling: "US supports Israel the terrorist."
